About six weeks ago I was using an 18 volt drill with a 1/2″ bit to drill out a hole under a stair rail. I was sitting drilling up. I had the drill on maximum torque. The bit hit a large screw and stopped. The drill handle swung my hand to the inside direction of my body and hyper extended the tendons just under the outside bony portrusion on my left wrist. The only thing that stopped my wrist from breaking was a spindle that the drill handle stopped on otherwise snap. I have iced it alot. Had a physical therpist manipulate it by hand, ultrasound and electric shock and ice a few times. I can’t swing a golf club or lift weights due to the nature of the injury. Has anyone else experienced this and how long did it take to heal? I sure learned a lot about torque and the proper use of it. GW
